Why do I have to show photo ID with my membership card?
As a non-profit organization, we rely greatly on membership and admission revenue for support and must prevent misuse of memberships. Not only does requiring ID protect the value of all memberships, but also protects you if your card is ever lost or stolen.
I have "One Guest" on my card, what does that entitle me to?
The guest option is a privilege to members and entitles them to admit one person per guest listed on the card. Guest's must be with you and may not use the membership card by themselves.
The other named adult is unable to come with me, may I bring a guest in their place?
If all the adults on your membership are named, only those adults may use the membership card.
Can I add additional people to my card during my membership?
You may always add additional people to you card, however there is a limit of three adults for every membership level, named or unnamed. All additions will be at the current purchase price and will expire at the end of your current membership term. Any changes made to your membership will require you to turn in your old membership card, and purchase a reprint for a nominal fee.

Guest passes may be given to anyone and they do not have to be with a member to use them.
